  1. Most of the freshman are 3pt shooters with a couple talented young bigs sprinkled in... will take some time due to youth, but should be interesting!
  2. I mean this is who Chaves hired at Eastern Washington... was there ever any doubt!? #baldbrothers
  3. A Miss Basketball from North Dakota and Minnesota?! Combined with the other talent coming in, I’d say Brew has done a great job accruing talent. Even with the talent the Freshman will take time to adjust to the D1 game, but the talent is there, it’s time for them to put in the work! Excited to see if we can turn this around.
  4. Serious question, not questioning anything about the program, but is there that much hockey talent in the area to make UND a real contender? Just seems like a lot of guys from the area, when I am guessing with our recruiting budget we could get players from anywhere. Again, just a question, want to hear thoughts..
  5. Agreed both are good players, but saying one is good on offense and one is good on defense isn’t cutting one short. And seeing Und needs Offense I like her a little more
  6. Manson can really shoot the ball and dribbles well, Reinke really struggles in both .. Reinke is a good defender, that’s her strength.. so totally different players
  7. Lets look at the recruits coming in: 5’10 PG - Borowicz - Roseau - 3,000 plus points - Big time player/guard everyone is saying brew needs - 33pts in yesterdays state quarterfinal win! 5’10 G - Keplin - Century - Big time shooter - physically ready - winner 6-0 G - Zander - Mandan - Miss Basketball - Big time shooter - good length and athleticism 5-8 PG - Manson - Sheyenne - Skilled, big time shooter, knows how to play - tough kid 6-3 F - Lane - Pequot Lakes - Played for North Tartan EYBL(top 10 AAU program in country), Long, athletic, scores and rebounds in bunches 6-4 C - Aly Van Loo - Beaver Dam - Comes from one of the best HS teams in the Country - Long, Big, Skilled around the hoop! I think thats everyone, but could be wrong - regardless, thats your 1 big time guard, 3 big time shooters, and 2 bigs that should be able to play in the post. With that said, it will even take some time for FRESHMAN to get used to the speed of the game, but the talent is there!
  8. Yeah, I see big picture is tough for you to comprehend .. you lost me with your SHAC comment, regardless of what you think of Brew, you can’t insinuate him and Maren are on the same level.. don’t even try, your credability would be more on the line than it already is. I’m done with you now, goodbye!
  9. Ummmm better product = better recruits/players ... those recruits/players want bells and whistles(something nicer) for them to come.. unfortunately building something comes first then the REALLY good recruits follow and we start winning those recruiting battles .. IMO
  10. 7 top 5 conference finishes.. 3 championships.. NCAA D1 tournament birth(which a lot of schools have never done).. all in 13 years ...going from D2 to Great West to Big Sky now to Summit League .. I don’t know what you do, but I hope in your job the expectations rise and the resources to get the job done stay the same .. cause that’s what’s happened here .. Jones isn’t great, but he isn’t awful either.. he has weathered some storms!
  11. Coaches win games and administrations win championships.. For example, SDSU, bordline(very borderline) one of the top mid major programs in the country ... they charter fly 3 to 4 trips a year and they gave us $80,000 guarantee last year to play at SDSU!! 80,000!! Our Men’s hoops gives about 15,000 or less, total, for all their home guarantees! Not paying for many winnable home games with that budget! Facilities example...how about a practice facility? SDSU, NDSU, USD all have brand new practice facilities..thats a big deal ...Kids now a days want bells and whistles! The fact of the matter is we don’t have the budget or the facilities to be one of the the top mid major programs and thats the truth. Blame jones all you want, but you’ll be blaming the next guy too when you see his success rate is the same because of the lack of those two key ingredients.
  12. Everyone is saying how you like this or that... but again it’s about recruits and recruiting, I’m glad some think the BESC is better than others down I-29, but I bet a high school kid from the Cities doesn’t see it that way and that’s the point! And that’s why USd and SDSU gets certain kids and we don’t.. bells and whistles .. our crowds are as good if not better, so yes we can sell environment, but think if we could sell both!?! So again, I think We need these upgrades for recruiting, not for our comfort.
  13. Look at the facilities below... Everyone is blaming Brew or the players or recruiting and I get it, but the fact of the matter is until we catch up facilities wise we will never get the recruits that go to those places below. Grand Forks is a way better town then vermillion and brookings and fargo, is well, just fargo! It’s not about town or location, its about what we can sell IMO. Everyone down I-29 has a new arena and practice facility. With that comes all the amenities, think UND hockey(not to even that extreme), the sell is convience and niceness/bells and whistles. Great locker rooms, brand new weight rooms, team rooms, study rooms, 24/7 access to a court(dont have to wait until practice if another team is in the arena, i would think then). I have friends that are season ticket holders at all 3 spots and they say its night and day ... We need our admin to step up and catch up, cause the Betty doesn’t have much of that, or yes it will be hard. Again, just an opinion!
  14. Their pre conference schedule may have actually helped them, all those away games(win or lose), really seemed to have them prepared to play at ORU.. they played against a lot of good teams and it showed with the W! I know some of us panicked and almost started calling for heads to roll, but remember Brew has been here before and he usually finishes well in conference. Sometimes there is a method to the madness .. keep it rollin hawks
